Question
are these any good? chargers

Hi it's time to get a new charger for charging my 2S 5000 gens ace lipo packs that can be charged at 5C because my 5Amp charger is just not up to the task.
I am looking at these 2 are these any good? leaning tawards the X2 charger because you can do 2 packs at once.
Any help will be great ...or other suggestions welcome.
Thanks

You will be able to charge 2 of yours packs in 1/2 hour.Don't know anything about Thunder chargers other than they are NOT Thunder Power.

You are comparing a 300W single port to a dual 400W. That's like comparing apples to oranges. The SkyRC is a far superior charger, which is reflected in it's price. It's actually identical to the Hitec X2-400, which is pretty well accepted as made by SkyRC for Hitec.

Unless you need the dual port perhaps you should be comparing the thunder to this:

I know but they also have the skyrc single 400Watt version for $79.00 One thing i read the skyrc instructions on line and it only has 200ma for the ballencer discharge . kind of low isn't it? if you charge at like 15 amps or more will the 200ma discharge be able to keep up and ballence at the hight amprage?

I noticed high amp chargers like the icharger use 300 to 500ma for ballance discharge?
